This is really cute. And also really interesting. Ben Affleck was in DC today, along with Bill Gates, to address the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations. There was a Batman mention, obviously. I think he’s going to ride closer to the RDJ approach to being a superhero as opposed to the Christian Bale one: Mention it whenever you can. Full Story

I love the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation trailer that Sarah posted yesterday – click here for a refresher. As she wrote, it’s pure ridiculous action movie fun. It knows exactly what it is. It doesn’t aim to be anything more. And Tom Cruise’s level of frustration when he delivers the final line – “the other door!” – is perfect. Full Story

If I’m Justin Bieber, 21 years old, trying to “man up” at every opportunity, I’m loving the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio, founding member of the Pussy Posse, wants to hang out with me. On Saturday night, the two were at a club together in West Hollywood. The pictures are sh-t quality so I didn’t buy them but if you want to see, click here Full Story

Miley Cyrus was in Vegas last night. Patrick Schwarzenegger was not with her, even though he’s back from Spring Break in Mexico. According to E!, one source says Miley isn’t taking his calls and that Patrick is “extremely frustrated” because he’s made it a point to be a really great boyfriend and can’t believe that people think he would step out on her. Full Story

We’ve known that it’s James for a while now. But we’ve never heard it from Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds…until now. Reynolds is doing press for The Woman In Gold, opening April 1. Jesus, it is April already??? Anyway, during an interview with The Today Show, Ryan confirmed that his daughter’s name is indeed JAMES. Full Story

Eva Mendes was interviewed by Extra because she’s promoting a makeup line, or something. I actually cracked up when she had to say the following: “This is an amazing opportunity for me to bring quality products to people at drugstore prices.” The most originally worded endorsement of all time, non? Anyway, that comes at the end. Full Story

Chris Evans goes for a burger

Sarah and I went for a switch today. She wrote about my #1 Oscar Isaac. And I'm writing about Chris Evans. She goes on and off on him. But the hope is always there. Which is why she was so pissed when she saw these shots of him leaving Fatburger in sweats. Something about how the top muscles don't match the lean legs. Full Story

Remember when Katie Holmes was a ninja? How she left Tom Cruise without Tom Cruise knowing? Secret cell phones and lawyers undercover and a new security team, all in place well before she blindsided him: I’m leaving you. Then it was every day paps with Suri in New York, part protection and part promotion. Full Story

It’s not Spring Break for everyone. And definitely not Princess Catherine who stepped out again today for a visit to the Brookhill Children’s Centre in Woolwich. She was just out yesterday for St Patrick’s Day. That’s at least 6 public appearances in the last two weeks. As I’ve been saying, they’re cramming it all in before she goes on maternity leave. Full Story

Rihanna doesn’t do a lot of interviews. She’s done some major interviews, sure. But you know she’s selective. And you know we don’t actually hear her speak at length very often. She’s promoting an animated film called Home though. So there are some press commitments. One of those was showing up on Good Morning America today with co-stars Steve Martin and Jim Parsons. Full Story

Selena Gomez was in Paris today for the Louis Vuitton presentation. Last night the new video for her song with Zedd, I Want You To Know, was released online. She’s dancing. She’s sweating. She changes multiple times. To me it looks like an advertisement for GUESS by Marciano. These are the cheesiest clothes. Full Story

There's a story going around right now that Taylor Swift has insured her legs for $40 million. The source is the National Enquirer. But since it's about Taylor and seemingly so random and, well, she gives us pictures to use of her legs so often, the report is getting picked up everywhere. For my generation - and that means those of us born before 1980 - the one person we associate with "leg insurance" is Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight. Full Story
